Leslie Zampetti @leslie_zampetti#MSWL I’d love to see some Latinx/Jewish contemporary YA... Or a retelling of Romeo & Juliet with the protagonists both devout but different religions... Or a great MG mystery that more Mo LeBeau and less Nancy Drew & ClueCrew.
Oops! #MSWL Day is tomorrow!
Well, at least I’m on brand. I’m always the early bird! 😊🐥📚
Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds@ct_calella @angelaahnbooks @shellyvjames @FTBradleyAuthor @KeeganMBrown @dougcenko @sarahkcwrites @zoeselina @JameyanneFuller @ShayESTaylor @CarolynLe12 @MicBabay I’ve met—or nearly met—all of my first year goals. And I have BIG plans for next year: signing more clients, selling big books, diving deeper into foreign/film/audio, attending more conferences, and finding a way to mentor or offer a paid internship.
Speaking of new clients, my #MSWL has been updated! Yes, I’m looking for graphic novels now! Plus, a continued call for commercial YA, literary MG, and PB author-illustrators. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur…

There’s no one right way to go through the stages of grief, and if we spent more time normalizing, say, taking a year and a half to get through anger (🙋🏻♀️), we’d feel less like people “fucked us up” and more like we’re having a universally human experience. So, yeah, #YA #MSWL.
I had the joy of completing a new interview with @DarlingAxe, + I cover preferred genres (#MSWL -- fiction + non-fiction, for YAs + adults), submissions, the industry, + good books. Check out the full interview here: bit.ly/2kZ1ten.
On a whim I decided to watch this movie on Netflix called Ramen Shop and it's an amazing story about culture, family, love, and (of course) food.
Now I'd like a YA or MG story that explores the bonds of family and culture (especially a blended one) through food! #mswl
Megan Carroll @MeganACarrollActively searching for brilliant children’s authors writing MG or YA (nothing too high fantasy though...). Please get in touch via email@example.com if you have something I might like! #mswl
Oliver Clegg @deathbybadgerVAMPIRE: you see, this town is under my spell
MAN: actually I'm not
MAN: I'm not enchanted
VAMPIRE: but you did all those chores
MAN: you seemed stressed
VAMPIRE: you dusted my coffin
MAN: I wanted to
VAMPIRE: we had dinner
MAN: it was beautiful
Give me this YA romcom between a vampire and a nice bro #MSWL
Beyond this, I have yet to ever go on submission with a good thriller or memoir, and so throwing out a desire these, in an especial way, but throw me any YA and adult fiction and non-fiction you've got, with some exceptions. Open to #queries like heck! #MSWL
I'd love a good novel that explores the affective/emotional life as a key plot development device. I'd also love of a novel that treats of healthy religiosity--for YAs or adults both. So often, religion is negatively grasped and/or understood as damaging. #MSWL
